051786 - YEADON ABOVE AND BEYOND: The Illustrated History of Leeds Bradford Airport

By Kenneth B Cothliff

An update to the previous 2011 edition of “Yeadon Above the Rest”, "Yeadon, Above and Beyond" has been extensively re-written with many more photographs produced with the co-operation of the new owners of the airport, AMP Capital.

The new book brings the story of Aviation in the Leeds area, in particular Leeds Bradford Airport, fully up to date. Chapters include much rarely seen information on the pre-WW2 history, as well as the story of the Avro Shadow factory that constructed 700 Lancasters,  4000 Ansons, and 200 Yorks. That factory set the scene for the growth of the airfield into the major airport it is now.
